Apple hasn't made a 68K Mac since, oh, 1995.

The thing now is the differences between G3, G4 & G5, and that
early G3 Macs still used the NuBus, and thus won't run Linux.

A bit off topic, but...
Not quite. The last NuBus Macs were the 8100 series (Cold Fusion) with a 601 processor. These were followed by the 8500 series(Nitro) with a 603 processor and PCI. All G3, G4 & G5 Macs use PCI. If you're interested, you can find the gory details at http:www.everymac.com.

BTW, I'm happily running debian on two macs, an 8500 (PCI) and a 6400(NuBus). Nothing like running a server on a box with a $30 street value. My major cost is the electricity :-)
